This could be the ultimate racing app. This app has all the features one needs to race a sailboat. I would be willing to pay high dollar for this app if it were stable. Unfortunately and too often I am in the middle of a race and the app notifies me of a violent crash when all I need is current velocity. Beta expires next month but not willing to pay for this until it is stable. One more issue, the iPhone version bears no resemblance.
Feedback Extra help/detail if you push menu button? Not helpful for Samsung S5. No menu button unless it's within the app. Is it? If so, where do I find it? Similar issue to apps like Boatie. Long push on bottom LH button to get menu options results in error message "does not support split screen". Price it sensibly and you will be on to a winner. Volume sales will outdo high price. Will you set up databases of marks for the major racing regions such as the Solent in UK? Do you need local input to do this for you?
Much potential, very good so far Used the app for a leasurely sailing trip today. Used the speed and distance indicators, and they worked beautifully. Im hoping for this to turn into a sailing log system. I would pay good money if I could log each stretch of a journey, with distance, avg, min, and max spd, etc - and maybe even a map plotting the trip. As is, I would continue using it at a fair price in lack of an onboard gps.
Fantastic app has been using it for the last 3 years for inland sailing. ..almost need no other instruments and can go back and check on track sailed.
Where is the love for this app? Make it stable, do some updates (get it out of beta) make it the i-regatta/expedition software of our dreams for dinghy's. I would pay money for the app..It would get 5 stars otherwise.
Tactician Has potential but needs to allow the race to include the same mark more than once. Recent race here was 0 to 2 to 4 to 2 to 6 to 0. This app can't.
